Ok now I am freaked out.. I went and started bike today. I let it warm up till fan came on. No smoke at all? weird? Should I still go ahead and replace that head gasket?
I couldnt get it to smoke more than an itty bit?
I think I would run it carefully as is and see how it acts for awhile maybe.
Mine did not smoke when I bought it, but one cold morning just a few days later it was a fogger about 3 AM for awhile when I fired it up with choke on. Later I had no smoke once it warmed up.
Seamed to never smoke after than till the other day, after sitting about 3 days or so not stared I got a little smoke like a small fogger for a few seconds.
Mine seems fine otherwise, no water to oil, not using any oil I can tell, runs fine.
I need to did out the old compression tester and Leak down testers and see what I can find.
